What does our working environment look like?
With a brand new office in the new upcoming neighbourhood Houthavens we welcome you! The Houthavens area was formerly an industry terrain, and now is being rebuilt into an exciting neighbourhood with loads of restaurants and the famous Amsterdam Theater. Our office is 10 minutes away by bus from Amsterdam CS and is fully-equipped with a nice kitchen, modern designs and a lot of plants. The office is really geared towards collaboration, because of the open and comfortable working spaces.
Our Tech Department currently consists of 4 disciplines (Backend, iOS, Android & our Close Builder). We have a test-driven, agile environment where you will have a lot of freedom and ownership in your job. Our development team consists of experienced developers that are always trying to find the right balance between a quick release schedule and Nasa-level quality. This is seen in our culture where we have a very high focus on quality, privacy and reliability. Everything that we build is secure by design!
Our backend that runs mainly on PHP (OO) and MariaDB and is connected through an API to our iOS app (Swift) and our Android app (Kotlin). We are also currently redesigning our client-facing marketing platform which we call Close Builder. All of the teams work very closely with the Design team to ensure the best user experience across our platform.
And where would I fit in?
You will be part of the Backend team, which currently consists of 2 developers. You will report directly to Wiebe (CTO) and later to the Lead Backend. As a Senior Developer you will have a good balance between solving urgent user issues directly and also thinking about the future and building our Backend towards that. Things that you could be working on are: our own API which would be consumed by event organisations around the world, the backend of our Close Builder or splitting up part of our current codebase into (micro)services.
